Car and Driver: Mercedes-Benz Preparing Hydrogen Fuel-Cell GLC-class for 2018

Recommended Posts

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC250 4MATIC (Euro-spec)


Mercedes-Benz’s build-out of the GLC-class crossover lineup continues. On the heels of the turbo-four-powered GLC300, there will be a twin-turbo V-6–powered GLC450 AMG Sport model, a diesel, a plug-in hybrid, and . . . a fuel-cell model? Indeed, at least according to Autocar, to which Benz R&D chief Thomas Weber spilled the beans about a future GLC hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered variant that won’t debut until 2017.


Given that we’re nearly two years away from even seeing the fuel-cell GLC, details are thin. However, Weber did tell Autocar to expect a total driving range of up to 373 miles, with refills of the hydrogen tank requiring three minutes. The fuel-cell system will be all-new—and apparently not derived from the setup in the old fuel-cell B-class—but that’s all we know. No prospective sales markets were listed, but we can’t imagine Benz will pass on the opportunity to sell or lease the fuel-cell GLC in California. It might not have a choice, since that’s the only location in the U.S. with even a fledgling hydrogen-refueling network. Look for the hydrogen-fueled GLC to debut at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show before sales begin in 2018.
